Nicholas Krushenick: Electric Soup

Nicholas Krushenick (1929–1999) combined witty Pop sensibilities with a myriad of artistic inspirations to create dynamic, playful paintings. Juxtaposing broad black lines with bold, flat Liquitex colors, Krushenick devised hard-edged abstractions that fill his canvases from corner to corner. The first museum survey of Krushenick’s work in several decades, this exhibition features work from the 1960s to the 1990s.
